Christmas All Year With Monthly Letters From Santa


Every holiday season seems to go the same way. We start out excited about pulling out the decorations, setting up the advent calendar, welcoming the elves back, and planning all the festivities for the month of December. I get excited to finish the Christmas shopping early so I can enjoy a more peaceful season than the previous year (which never happens). In the meantime, the kids are getting excited to write out a gift list for Santa with the hopes that they’ve made it onto the nice list this year. While the Holiday season can be incredibly busy, and even exhausting toward the end, seeing children’s faces light up after a visit from Santa is one of the most magical moments of the year. It truly makes up for the holiday craze that precedes it. Finding a way to spread some of that magic throughout the year is a special Continue reading

Baby Wearing Options


Wrapping your baby on your body so you can keep them close and go hands free is certainly not a new practice. It’s ancient across multiple cultures, but we’ve seen a growing trend of mother’s ‘wearing’ their babies in recent years. I get very excited as we continue to see natural and more attached methods of child rearing emerge (or re-emerge). I don’t mean Continue reading

Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator Review #NeilMed #MomsMeet


I’ve been in the “natural world” for many years now. During this time, I’ve been surrounded by the types of products those who live a clean, more natural, and healthier lifestyle tend to use. Even though I am familiar with most of the natural health products out there, there are still many I need to try. Now, I can cross one more natural healing remedy off my list. The neti-pot. I can officially say I have tried the neti-pot for optimal nasal health and cleanliness. Thanks to GreenMomsMeet, I was introduced to Neil-Med, and I had the chance to try their nasal rinse and infant aspirator in addition to the neti-pot. I was impressed with all of these products. Here Continue reading

Fun Math App for Elementary Age Kids


While I write mainly about natural health, eco-friendly living, and all things green, I like to put a special focus on technology as well. Technology is green in it’s own way. When using our phones, tablets, and computers for educational purposes, we are saving materials by not using paper filled books. This is the same reason Monday Storytime features are typically found in the Kindle store (or at the library). Basically, education is an essential part of our lives, but it doesn’t have to create waste. Unless you are living a completely off the grid, as close as modernly possible to a nature based lifestyle, chances are you have technology all around your home. If you have Continue reading

How to Massage Your Baby


Massage is one of the most widely known ways to promote natural healing, though not a lot of people associate it as a way to heal the body. While massage is an excellent way to de-stress, the benefits it can offer go far beyond relaxing the muscles. The best part of massage, especially in terms of healing, is that it can range in pressure from gentle to intense to accommodate any age and physical condition. There are a few health Continue reading

Early Language Learning with Kids’ Candor


I didn’t have the opportunity to learn a language when I was a child, so I feel very motivated to encourage my children to learn one. I had a blast teaching my son baby sign language when he was a toddler. As fun as that was, I had no idea how to approach the learning of a new language with my little boy. I know of Rosetta Stone, but it isn’t exactly intended for the young ones. I wish Kids’ Candor was an option for us at that influential time in his life, as well as my Daughter’s a few years later.

When is a House Remodel Dangerous?


Living in an old building hasn’t been all fun and games for us. It’s not old enough to be some awesome vintage home, but it certainly is old enough to require a lot of care, updates, and remodeling. For the most part, we’ve had fun making a cozy, old place look newer and more “us”. We painted, we placed laminate flooring, we cleaned, we decorated. The hardest part has been the fact that every time we think a project will be easy, it turns out the place needs so much more repair work than we thought. So far, the worst Continue reading
